American creative designer, DJ, and the founder of the Milan-based fashion label Off-White, Virgil Abloh, teamed up with Nike to reconstruct 10 Nike footwear icons.


The 10 shoes were divided into two themes. The first, “REVEALING“, was designed to look accessible: hand-cut, open-source and reconstructed. It includes the Air Jordan I, Nike Air Max 90, Nike Air Presto, Nike Air VaporMax and Nike Blazer Mid.

The second, “GHOSTING“, was designed with translucent uppers to further the idea of revealing and unite the second set of silhouettes through common material. It includes the Converse Chuck Taylor, Nike Zoom Fly SP, Nike Air Force 1 Low, Nike React Hyperdunk 2017 and Nike Air Max 97.
